This week, the online streaming service declared it had announced that Squid Game has surpassed 117 million global accounts in 17 days. In this way, Squid Game has also become the first Netflix series to reach 100 million viewers within its initial 28 days of being on the platform. The show easily surpassed the previous record set by “Bridgerton,” which was watched by 82 million viewers within just the initial 28 days.
It’s important to note that the fact that 111 million viewers watched Netflix however, it doesn’t mean they watched the whole series from beginning to end. Netflix’s numbers are based on viewers who logged on for more than two minutes.
Growth in international markets has been a primary goal on the part of Netflix in recent times, with the company investing in a large amount of foreign-language programming and films such as “Money Heist” and “The Platform,”” that have enjoyed commercial and critical great success.
“It took over 10-years by Hwang Dong-hyuk to make Squid Game. It took just 17 days and 111M worldwide viewers to make it our largest ever show at the time of its launch (and the first show to reach 100 million viewers when it first debuted),” the Netflix announcement is below.
